NASHUA — A New Hampshire man has been sentenced to eight years in federal prison for trafficking methamphetamine in the state.
Philip Wetmore, 32, of Nashua, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Samantha D. Elliott on Monday.
Wetmore pleaded guilty in February to two counts of distributing methamphetamine and one count of possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute.
The FBI arrested Wetmore in February 2022 after he sold approximately 81 grams of crystal methamphetamine to an individual in Nashua.
At the time of his arrest, Wetmore had a loaded firearm on him.
The FBI seized approximately 671 grams of crystal methamphetamine, a second loaded firearm, and other items associated with drug trafficking from Wetmore’s car.
Wetmore is legally prohibited from possessing firearms.
“The sentence imposed today reflects the severity of the defendant’s criminal conduct, that being trafficking methamphetamine into our communities,” said U.S. Attorney Jane E. Young.
